Yorkshire set for Barbados return
Yorkshire are the latest county to announce a pre-season trip to Barbados in March, joining Derbyshire, Hampshire, Northamptonshire, Nottinghamshire and Warwickshire.
The Tykes will defend their Barbados Twenty20 Cup, beginning against Hampshire - who beat them in last year’s Friends Life t20 final - at the Kensington Oval on March 16.
Andrew Gale’s side will also play two two-day friendlies: versus Derbyshire from March 19 and Notts from March 22 at Windward CC.
Director of cricket Martyn Moxon said: “We are delighted to be returning to Barbados to defend our title.
“Barbados is a perfect location for our pre-season programme. From the excellent facilities to the competitive nature of matches and not forgetting the guaranteed warm weather, you can’t ask for a better location to prepare for the new season.
“We have a lot to work on between now and then, but come March we will be ready for a solid pre-season.”
Yorkshire fly out on March 11 and the first week will see the players train and play a two-day game among themselves.
